Father Richard is THE BEST
Father Richard was great to work with and does a beautiful Catholic ceremony. We met with him a few times prior to our wedding day and he really took the time to get to know us and offered great marriage advice. It fostered a very personal and intimate feeling ceremony which is exactly what we were looking for. He ensures you’re well prepared for your wedding day as well as your future together. He was such an important part of our big day and will remain a part of our life as a married couple for years to come!Sent on 09/16/2019

Can't recommend highly enough :)
Where should I start?Sent on 07/29/2019
When my husband and I first decided to look into officiants for our wedding, we were faced with a litany of issues: (1) he is Hindu, (2) I had never been officially baptised, (3) our marriage faced significant external opposition ... the list goes on.
To say that Bishop Richard helped us navigate these issues is an understatement. He welcomed our dual-Hindu/Catholic ceremonies with all the amity in the world and was very understanding of our circumstance. After several meetings, I asked Bishop Richard to also baptise me, and I'm blessed (quite literally) that he and his wife were able to attend the entire 12-hour wedding day as guests.
The spiritual aspects of the wedding aside, Bishop Richard gave phenomenal tips for the wedding itself (Details you don't think of, like lanterns lining an aisle getting knocked over as the bride's walking down). I'll let him give you the rest of them, but for now - a huge thank you to Bishop Richard and his lovely wife Mary, and I know we'll stay in touch well after the wedding day.
